Working together, we can end homelessness in Falmouth.

Community Builders Monthly Giving Program

Denise & SamDenise and Sam, Falmouth residents

“My husband and I love living in Falmouth and value all the volunteer efforts to make life better for all.  We opted to be monthly donors to BTEO because homelessness is a year-round issue.  BTEO has grown from a grassroots organization to a non-profit that fully understands the issues surrounding homelessness by providing winter housing, meals, self-care kits, financial and well-being counseling, and more.  As a volunteer for BTEO, I’ve seen first-hand the respect and admiration for this organization and the strength of their local commitment to equity and inclusion on the Cape.”

At BTEO we are dedicated to helping our neighbors in need by offering loving support and guiding them towards permanent housing.  Supporting BTEO through a monthly gift is a simple yet significant way to make a difference in that process.

  • A gift as small as $10.00- $30.00 dollars a month allows BTEO case managers to work closely with our guests to address the barriers in the way of achieving their goals. to more efficiently monitor its revenue stream and manage its resources.
  • We are a small, part-time staff and depend on donations in order to keep our lights on and doors open. Your gift of $100.00 a month allows us to remain nimble while we focus on the  needs of our guests.
  • When you make a commitment to become a monthly donor, you will join the other members of the Community Builders at BTEO. You decide the amount, and can easily change the amount or stop the donation at your convenience.

Community Builders are invited to two special yearly events*:

  1. Coffee with the Case managers- come join our staff to learn about the programming that takes place in the house. Hear success stories and where our guests are headed next
  2. The Inside Scoop with BTEO’s Executive Director – join Gina Torielli for an informative conversation about strategic planning and future of BTEO while enjoying some ice cream.

* A minimum donation of $10/month is kindly requested in order to join the Inside Scoop and Coffee with Case Managers.
